Aberdeen Fans Drive Human League Song Up The Charts

Aberdeen Fans Drive Human League Song Up The Charts

Music and football are connected on a much larger scale than most people give credit for, be it for World Cup songs; pre-match atmosphere or a template to express love (or indeed hatred) for a certain player, football and music are very much connected.

This week Aberdeen fans have taken this link one step further by driving a Twitter campaign to get a hit by The Human League to number one in the charts.

‘Don’t You Want Me’ is one of the most recognisable and successful song by The Human League and has been attributed to Dons midfielder Peter Pawlett. The hit, from the 1980s, has taken off again since Aberdeen’s recent Scottish League Cup victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Both The Human League and the club’s playing staff have joined in with the effort, with many calling for the group to play it at the Pittodrie Stadium on a matchday in the future. Aberdeen players and supporters alike have been spreading the word using #peterpawlettbaby and since then, the song has shot up the charts.

The song currently sits at number 4 in the UK charts, but the Dons fans will most certainly be looking for another victory of sorts in honour of their favourite midfielder.
